Fan Made 3D Pac-Man That Plays With Kinect
Posted on Tuesday, May 10 @ 17:01:38 Eastern by Blake_MorseSo yesterdays post about the Pac-Man bird may have been real or fake. (I'm going with real. I believe because I want to.) But this video of a developer and his 3D, Kinect compatible, self-produced Pac-Man game are very, very real and very, very interesting.
The whole thing was built using Unity3D and the concept is basically the same as any other Pac-Man: Run around, collect dots, don't get eaten by ghosts. There are a few aspects unique to this homebrew though, such as the fact that your body controls the game, you can pick stuff up and then throw it, and if you flap your arms, you can fly just like a spherical,armless Peter Pan.
There is one thing that puzzles me about it. How come there are deadly mushrooms from the Mario Brothers games strewn all about the environment? Did the programmer not know the difference between Mario and a bright yellow ball? Does that even matter when something is this awesome?
Seriously though, I would love to have a Pac-Man game that played like this, especially if it was anywhere near as psychedelic looking as Championship Edition. Here's to hoping this indie game gets some backing and makes it onto a system sometime in the near future! C'mon Namco-Bandai, help this kid out!
